Women Pioneers in Oakland: The Afternoon Carriage House Salon continues!
On Sunday, March 24th the Carriage House Salon Lecture series continues at 4 PM with Michael Colbruno talking about women pioneers from Oakland and surrounding communities in honor of Women's History month. This will be an intriguing look into the lives of female pioneers in the arts, law, architecture, business, civil rights and botany who made a difference to our community.
Michael Colbruno is a docent at Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California.

As a photographer, he has been professionally published in the book Street Art and the War on Terror, published by Rebellion U.K.. Michael has become the docent expert on the early lives of the gypsies who lived in the East Bay.
